    And yet, you know, all are making for the same goal, all are striving in the same direction anyway, from the sage to the lowest robber, only by different paths. This is an old truth, but what is new here is
    this: I cannot get very confused. Because I saw the truth, I saw and I know that
    people can be beautiful and happy without losing the ability to live on earth. I will
    not and cannot believe that evil is the normal condition of people.

    Fyodor Dostoevsky

    That's a powerful statement. I find just regurgitating really smart people's ideas can even be alienating.

    None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    One who has seen his true nature no longer regards life as being full of menace and misery as most people do. His previously mistaken sense of personal volition and responsibility has disappeared in such freedom and joy that life is now just an amusing spectacle like a game or a dream, in which he has no real part. - Ramesh Balsekar

    Thought alone, when it is no longer connected with the much vaster realm of consciousness, quickly becomes barren, insane, destructive. ~ Eckhart Tolle


    When scientific or rational thinking is grounded in presence it has a completely different outcome. It can never be monstrous. ~ Jean Klein
